Can I grow gardenias from cuttings?
Yes, you will need cuttings from woody stems. Dip the cuttings into rooting hormone, and stick into some high quality potting mix. Keep the soil damp but not wet. Cover the cuttings with plastic to keep a high humidity. Within a few weeks there will be roots on the cuttings. Carefully transplant the cuttings to a small pots and you should have many Gardenias.
Reply:first go to a place for flowers and get this stuff called rootone, only florists sell this, get a fresh cutting, get an empty soda plastic bottle and cut in half, so to open and close it and regulate the humidity in the homemade greenhouse, keep in dark place until leaves start, then move to sunny location, if plant gets bigger, use bigger 2 liter bottle,put the cutting with rootone in the dirt, about 2 weeks check it,
